Where to buy

In the encounters in the wild series, renowned nature writer Jim Crumley gets up close and personal with British wildlife. With his inimitable passion and vision, he relives memorable encounters with some of our best-loved native species, offering intimate insights into their extraordinary lives. “There was a face looking at me. It was the colour of autumn and snow. Its eyes were smouldery gold. Its ears were tall and wide for the size of the face. The fur on its narrow forehead and between its ears stood on end, but lay sleekly aslant on its cheeks, and that was the autumn of the face. From the black tip of the nose, a band of bright white travelled back the full length of the face, and that was the snow of the face. It was the face of a fox, a vixen I guessed, alluringly beautiful, entrancingly wild.”
